The North Star State

Population701 million

CapitalSuperior City


The Armed Republic of The North Star State is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 701 million Northerners are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Superior City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.3%.

The powerhouse Northern economy, worth 66.1 trillion Notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,233 Notes, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The North Star State's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The North Star State is ranked 31,058th in the world and 1,742nd in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,055 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
